    F4/F4S in 'silent' mode. The other cameras are great machines but big metal machines are never going to be mistaken for quiet.

    They go almost hand in glove. I just recently purchased both cameras and I love the way the S2 feels and shoots infact I just added a 3.5cm/2,5 for it. As far as quiet, I think my Bessa R makes less shutter noise than the S2.

    Not sure how Nikon handles it but on a Canon I believe has something to do with mirror return/shutter recock.

    It cant even remember what you need to do to get ready to shoot in quiet mode, maybe half depress the shutter?

    I never use it.

    Is the Nikon F100 only marginally quieter than the F5 or significantly so and if so what accounts for the difference? Thanks

    Yeppo.

    It winds the film & cocks the shutter a little slower than normal. Supposedly to reduce static buildup, or film breakage in super-cold conditions.

    If anyone cares, I fired an F2, F3, and an F4s to compare.

    In the interest of fairness, I did so at arms length. I presume the OP is more concerned about someone he is shooting hearing the camera than himself hearing the camera.

    As an aside, my F4 is quieter than my Leica M6. I have no problems convincing people Im not a reporter (Im not) with the M6. When I was 18 everyone thought I was a reporter with the F4.

    JMHO, but the F4 is the "most camera feeling" fully automatic camera ever made. Its a hard thing to explain.

    Convince a someone who has only ever shot an F or F2 to pick one up, and half the time you will have to fight him for it back. Give him an N80, N90, F100, F5/6 etc and he might throw it at you out of frustration. ANYONE who can shoot a full-manual camera (or full auto people) can figure out how to use an F4. It works EXACTLY like an F2 in full manual mode, and never gives the user the dreaded "which buttons do I need to hold while turning which dial" fright. Everything works exactly how one would expect it to work.

    My only gripe with the F4 is that the program modes dont offer the ability to change Fstop/shutter speed like some newer cameras do. you know, dial through every automatically offered Fstop/shutter combo with the flick of a wheel...
